The Year of the Doppelbock

Totes Ma Goats Doppelbock went on draft late last week at Fox River Brewing in Oshkosh.

This looks and tastes like a classic, German doppelbock, but there's a twist. "It features absolutely no imported malts or hops," says Andrew Roth, head brewer at Fox River.  "It is a part of an ongoing side project of mine to find local and US produced ingredients to make European style beers without sacrificing quality." It certainly worked for this one. At 7.3% it's an ideal warmer as we head into winter.

Totes Ma Goats is the fifth doppelbock released by an Oshkosh brewery this year. That’s a record for doppelbock here. Every Oshkosh brewery put out a doppelbock this year. The first three came in March and were poured at the Winter Beer Fest. Bare Bones Brewing, Fifth Ward Brewing, and HighHolder Brewing all had doppelbocks there.

Bare Bones Salvatore, released in March as part of the breweries Heritage Series.

Fifth Ward Struck again in September with a big doppelbock made from with reiterated mash.

And now there's Totes Ma Goats at Fox River. The bocks are back!
